Robert Trujillo Confirms Metallica Will Record Next Year
The bassist says they're ready for album number 10.Trujillo says the follow-up to 2008’s ‘Death Magnetic’ has been in development since late last year and they’re now primed to start laying down the material in the studio.
Reflecting on the autumn 2012 sessions, Trujillo said: "(They were) what I call the process of elimination, where we go through all the riffs and ideas we’ve all had, and we’re 80 per cent of the way through that."
"The plan is next year to move forward and start recording."
"Metallica always takes on the challenge, and the fans can take what they want from it. At the end of the day, we always get them back.”
The band’s upcoming 3D movie Metallica: Through the Never hits cinema screens in the UK on 4th October.
It’s preceded by the official soundtrack next week - the full track-listing is as follows:
